O’Connor on the Latin Mass:
“I am one of the laymen who RESIST the congregation yapping out the mass in English & my reason besides neurotic fear of change, anxiety and laziness is that I do not like the raw sound of the human voice in unison unless it is under the discipline of music….
(Letter to “A” (17 October 1959) in Letters of Flannery O’Connor/the Habit of Being at p. 356; Sally Fitzgerald ed. (1979))
I always liked O’Connor.
